Celebrate the 150th Anniversary of our Historic Honesdale Building

Win a Gift Certificate for $150!

Our Flagship Showroom in Honesdale, PA. The building turns 150 years old in 2018!

Eighty-two years ago, Van Gorders’ Furniture began business as the Honesdale Furniture Exchange in the massive four-story building that still houses its flagship showroom. Today, that historic structure has entered its 150th year of service to Honesdale and the surrounding region.

Originally the National Hotel, the building still stands at the corner of Church and Sixth Streets. As reported by Gloria McCullough (Wayne County Historical Society) in the Wayne Independent, the large brick structure was originally erected in 1868 by William Weaver.

Fine Construction

“The building was one of the largest single buildings constructed in Honesdale in the time period,” McCullough wrote. “An opera house with a large stage and two dressing rooms on either side occupied the second floor. The property included a brick barn that could accommodate 110 horses.”

Today, the former hotel is filled with the finest American-made rustic and classic home furnishings, as well as flooring products and Sealy Posturepedic and Stearns & Foster mattresses.

From providing lodging to becoming the premiere showcase for top quality home furnishings, the former National Hotel — Van Gorders’ flagship showroom — is still making history.

Enter to Win

To celebrate the building’s 150th Anniversary, Van Gorders’ Furniture will award a gift certificate valued at $150 to a lucky winner to be chosen at random through a contest hosted on our Facebook page.

Fun with the Black Bear Film Festival

Van Gorders’ Furniture partnered with the Black Bear Film Festival (BBFF) to host a reception for renewing and new members of BBFF’s Patrons Den on Sunday, January 22 in our Milford, PA showroom at 321 Water Street (Route 2001).

Scott Van Gorder welcomes patrons of Black Bear Film Festival into his Milford, PA furniture showroom.
Scott Van Gorder chats with Milford resident Kathryn Jung about our commitment to the Black Bear Film Festival and the community at large.

“As a local business in Pike and Wayne counties,” said Scott Van Gorder, “we value the importance of Black Bear and other cultural institutions. The festival, its patrons and its sponsors are good for our business and good for our communities.”

Now in its 18th year, The Black Bear Film Festival is held every fall in Pike County, PA. Its mission is to support and promote innovative, independent films.

Guests at the reception in our Milford furniture showroom enjoyed wine, cheese, coffee, and treats as BBFF’s Bob Keiber previewed some of the film festival’s 2017 initiatives. He highlighted the return of BBFF’s Schools Partnership Initiative, which was launched last year with more than 12 student films showcased during festival weekend.

Leading up to the 2017 film festival, slated for October 20 through 22 in Milford, BBFF will provide films, events, workshops and programs throughout the year.

“We’ll always remain focused on the October festival weekend,” said Keiber, “but as we form partnerships with regional schools, merchants, and other community organizations, we all see the benefits of making Black Bear a year-round part of the community fabric.”

The Patrons Den membership club was launched last year by Barbara Buchanan and BBFF Board Member Will Voelkel as a means of welcoming festival patrons into a members’ club with benefits including previews, passes, special events and discounts.

For more information about membership contact the Black Bear Film Festival.
